This is a fascinating tale, rich with period detail and written with great historical fluency. Evan Andrew knows his material and uses it to weave a compelling story of Julia and her change of circumstances. From a glittering life amid the bustle of the Royal Court, she leaves to live with a curmudgeonly great-uncle out in the country. She expects a quiet life, but is swept up into the danger and deceit of smugglers who operate along the south coast of England. There is romance too, and a difficult choice to make there. Immerse yourself in this intimate view of days gone by.
